21. Excellent point.

As much as I enjoyed the movie "Hotel Rwanda", there is no doubt that it has served as a bit of propaganda of sorts. That the U.S. and U.K. were actively supporting the RPF in the run-up to 1994 is usually glossed over or left out entirely, and for what purpose if not for imperialism? The Hutu reaction was one of genocidal extremism no doubt, but that should have tolerated RPF extremism is also unconscionable, after the Belgians had so ruthlessly ruled with them as their partners during the colonial years.
